7:37 pm
school. the latest information about this tells us that that is not a u s in case any more. and this is a huge conversation for france because france is obsessed with being a good republican nation. the sense of equality and everybody has access to the education and this report puts it right there you know i flat out that this is the same time. any and it's getting worse. and if like me and i know that in france is that whether you're the son of a factory worker or the son of a company manager regardless your social backgrounds who did the school will level the playing field and i have equal chances the audience at the end of that to come and see a system that has to be yes that's a story tonight and of the many reasons and the left into the room is of course. out of school teachers and now some news too. and change the things

films often a sixty eight and with a mini was supposed to have the same scooting into the age of sixteen. because otherwise election was endemic to the wood to knock it is the sentiments of action by the ntu its inaction by myself i must say the result is actually the opposite of what the basics to get through three stumps and no one argues the same via twitter that in france socio economic background and stronger negative effect than in most oecd countries which is in the right analysis of the report and to be the viewer before that was actually saying. and you might take issue with this hmm would say it's not that french students are bad at it says that they are not as good as a chinese students but that being average does mean. i'm being bad but let's just make things very clear to that you were the um the lower level french students the bottom of the pile are now at the same level as romania in cyprus according to that oecd report so yes it is in fact
7:40 pm
the case that's on the second tear the lower tier of a preference to boost their level has dropped to tenth in the low average mind reading the report itself. i am in awe not things francaise out or a cd of is that it is only the spot it in me says this is oregon was the lone social outgoing lanes and when you look at the successful education system which at that time high for the top countries in europe to finland estonia and you look at that. the success of students regardless of the bike and is far more prevalent in those countries so those countries mitigate any disadvantage the home button can possess event it is interesting that we call on resilient students a proportion of students from the greatest bargains. we do better than you'd expect them to be given up those bargains in shanghai and hong kong finland these the percentage of students who beat goes on to something like seventy six to st in fines philippine it's only twenty five percent of the head and how do you do

that. he beat those odds the unique nature of this about to distribute into zoe's is equitable to make sure if possible. hopkins that the high expectations that everybody can achieve an education system and that those expectations he displayed in china i failed to close and be home schooled in shanghai that nobody expects that the children can succeed especially home from the decide to be a mandate to ensure high and in that they have an implant hit upon a potty seat like to see that a fight. if anxiously and it really means selected. i mounted rest of the best of the students and help those quiz on the bottom of the cost to you and dance too cheap to do to progress cialis is kind of policies and to even the worst of the cost he says he knows that he can progress which is kind of help and so we read it in terms of his parents kids and china is doing good
7:42 pm
get a perspective or math teacher geoff an idiot i do it instead of solving a problem. i'm mostly excited at the rnc has quickly what's the answer. the problem was two different pizza size and thickness is from a different price is one of them as thirty centimeters in diameter the other one fourteen centimeters which one is the best buy. via the spot and had to explain your reasoning yet i was on its line is the permanent line. student led the standings this and isn't that could be area the song that began in the top effects of using our own sweat. and you go. this will be to as the years and six we find specific that moment one thousand and six. swenson sleep in a new city to buy buy buy the price of iron and that is the county's classes
7:43 pm
races and get the same you've lost me that we have a history teacher nothing just a question that you know what the point of the exercises just ask you this is the kind of thing that they're asking fifteen year old to test their abilities. you feel that people did that students in your class who would be able to get that one right and that they would be able to get the full or near full marks on the exercise. well i mean it depends on the fifteen year olds and utopian gabriella minus two in the navy i have to reset and it's in my school and my car and the remaining hostages and decency group than that of this the group into thinking the foundation paper and they've been struggling a lot more than those stupid statement on a very talented cast i'm going to bed instead of sunday also think this explains and in doing it themselves and are an example so you may find it
7:44 pm
not. the sentiment each of the eleven year olds to be and soon all that independently and in the morning and then investigate. so some of the few trains on. i mean this this just isn't our conversation about the french republican system where i'm at it suppose to level the playing field and give everybody a say in the same skills and abilities are telling us of being in the english system you have eleven year olds. wherein i said who can solve the problem and yet fifteen year olds were in the bottom said. and who couldn't solve that problem. the death. now it says so. we have to get back to his french system is it's interesting to see how different systems. we choose to manage it and i suppose this is something to you more favorable to this kind of system gave the students who have more ability more sense even if it means that fifteen year olds will then be several years on i'm able to unable to find solution to that and i'm hoping stopped in the system and i don't know whether the fifteen year olds are our action on the map because the second
7:45 pm
thing is possible penalty enough. old when any extra tuition in which case the it's good to have them in a separate pan because then you can. i've taken with them staff and the need to do that they don't know yet that eleven year olds already been with people that is hearing and say hi to the exact context they would make sense of him and i got off the stockton ha ha few expectations home much of an expectation that was there did it in the fast paced time hedging my bets on the swim but sunny. if you teach a fifteen year we need to explain the basics especially in math. if you don't know the grounding in math you can all go and build on that in the kitchen you know an author doesn't matter you can go back to the world you will contact you. it is not linear but not that you don't have a grounding people who are manifold. sixteen year olds if they hear about something more complicated. they were just not know what it would cost too i'm in the eleven year olds do that with the symbol that they will think and act and even the boring give up on it. i
7:46 pm
don't think it's a chance on the system. but teaching is no use and install the reports will win this moral of the things that are a few of the night to light the witches creek typical of appease night in a traditional way of teaching with the teachers and puffing knowledge to get the students which i think is still prevalent in the current system isn't to know what those items acquired thinking skills critical thinking skills been able to solve problems. the traditional form of teaching we are simply stunning in the front and coughing knowledge doesn't provide those skills and so it needs students to be working together in groups and sold in cold and slamming them into the finding that only consolation from me giving the unsuspecting by the teacher simply saying that x is x and y is why sonia has implications but it teaches cheap cheap eats and while i type the first to learning groups aligned with santa that's one of the main means of the school system it does present a nice children and teach them to want to go to taiwan in terms of problem solving your problem solving at school and you have to do
7:47 pm
this is not just somebody telling you stuff and counting on you depend on it and it really begun to take it off to resign even if thirty years ago and problem solving mentioned i needed to have it today i called dimensionals to attach to you i think we'll cross that i cannot get the larger the elephants hero in the room is that for example judge i was talking to you and the efforts and when dining in shanghai i mean these these these are national conversations going on and the prom in france right now everybody is obsessed with having a national conversation we've been talking about what to do with reform french education for a couple of years now and it's just stuck in neutral it's not moving forward on the tv the team needs. i really wanted though it's not clear everybody to participate in many fields invested in yet. it was actually being come up with your wits with being soft here. it's something awesome like to say is is the issue of promise of the non this is something to eat it's very alarming. and i haven't written a report earlier today that they also
7:48 pm
discovered that when given a challenging problem. because again i wanted to slice their own lots of kids in france from all backgrounds but the more the better off backgrounds who are excellent mathematicians they can solve this it's not a problem which really weren't for me is that they've discovered that when french kids were given a challenging problem. they were more likely more inclined to turning a blind piece of paper. in the blank piece of paper for me is hugely symbolic because it talks about not only the fact that they be. they couldn't solve a problem the kids and it's not even that they didn't try it since they also did not feel comfortable enough to make a mistake these didn't feel comfortable enough to take the risk. they were worried there is the society i think i am late tonight and styles is the leading yourself. and to children. it has been calculated by the system it is thus conclude that he's not blend of french child reaches the age of eighteen to twenty oh two has been criticized hundred thousand
7:49 pm
times and she has this isn't easy but it's when he's eighteen easy to criticize a hundred thousand times no don't do this to your own and it's the whole thing is it breeds a generation of young people who have tall poppy syndrome they're afraid that if they are different from the others in beautiful perfume again topped off by fiat five hundred sites. and that's a real threat characteristic me. the french are told that conformist the way to get on in society to be different is to get to be going the way to really get into trouble and ideas especially when you're gone i think you know there are scratches because people are ridiculing including sometimes teachers because this person you have the stupid questions in order to wendy asked intelligent questions and that is something that doesn't exist in france and the identity of the debate but i've been meaning to the duty to be an original they let you be different than you could be an ap an eccentric this awful
7:50 pm
cold for the simplicity in a movement to end up with something that was encouraging to me when i went to bloomington. that's the same problem in china we are taught to be not to be on top of that. not on the top of the class and not to be to show off and on into class and that's why i have a crest and she did she get us there and had to teach you i've pasted a disaster just as we answered question is there is much criticism of students in shanghai me were you afraid this is when they are thriving. yes i've read that which is describing is this team's actually turn a blank page because they prefer to turn in the blank page and get zero and write nothing then they prefer to do that than to the bar in the next week with what we are not the top tier team in half i've been at her knee. we had to write something but maybe something has acted his eyes and nose and no pulling weeds weeds that was
7:51 pm
the correct answer but we have to write something to teach you to complete the paper. adam and matt dunning that well for me it's the equivalent to a bank paper i had initially when you use and tonight he said that china's steel shot high and stay on top of the rank and so i named it best she can dance lessons are united in for my identity as a guy that my intense iceland and the tiny students a meeting to which we interact with very good at math memory these things when did that relative to their name when we enter that i ate. so solving the problems when we went with mommy phase ii exam paper but that does this in a unfamiliar shivaji and demonstrate that at its own retro intelligence and eight oh it's just that. a test on the dance teams. condemning skis. it's more of my awesome
7:52 pm
reviews and is an examination of skills that students need to know not to be successfully in life to its employment with its new study i made on just empty statements. countries like thailand australia netherlands of fall into students to the resistance to fox didn't appease the puck into the eyes and looked to see what happened to the successful stints of the ones that did well on the test. and there's a wide say they do well in from a study and did well and to prevent the labor markets will continue full of new students will be fascinating to see our top story the mage is so that is going to be an element of its students i used to doing tests on the kind that uses an opponent in a few more comfortable with them but they are near the evidence is showing of amazing skills of relevant of the future success. i just wanna come back to this point about it you know the anxiety in the highly enough of the blind people and to develop and seemed to be a
7:53 pm
failure. this seems to be all about how to speak it's struggling students have dealt with the education system. i think is to shine i sandwiched in the likes of finland in estonia these are high performing countries as well. then the vague effective mechanisms for identifying winston is struggling and providing support. lots to do that what you see in front so there is the regret is that many systems though students with their due rights. france still students what they're doing wrong. i could've chosen and one particular statistic which has a reputation that is still prevalent in front of cars and moved over the years. so this is wonderful when you have to do the same year that ended in a foreign concept that it will be a foreign concept to some of our views because it is prevalent in france happens a lot but in the system is very rare and hispanics. it is as its booming analysis come to the hop but higher level of good grade competition and came out to be the highly successful ones tend to be
7:54 pm
ones with but i went to spot it isn't the phones. there's twenty eight percent is a great addition in france as compared to the european average of about twelve percent. hais improves and fronts and since the new tooth a century but is still much higher than the oecd average. and as expensive as well decide something like ten percent to the average cost of teaching a student so it's of a honeydew with the students and the butler is winners and won the systems that do this the most successful education systems and you get like this but it is between the successful stint on the unsuccessful ones so that is a systemic thing that can be changed it seems to be changing because it's improving since the peasantry is still a long way to go the funds to be about the time and it was just a few minutes flip it to adrian lam. what is the oh what is the road ahead for countries that are only average performers or for performance we've been talking about france the euro is the very
7:55 pm
involved in the french education system. oh the things i think i think will win every single day i think we've we've got a really good friends. he's really got to be certain of the new realize that the national conversation that's gonna take place tested again involve everybody but has to have very clearly defined goals and objectives. it's the first thing on and over time you about these is hugely cultural and cultural i don't mean in terms of national culture i mean in terms of the educational culture. on the radio the statistics that leapt off the page for me this morning and tease me is the fact that on the street kids who come from for such economic backgrounds when they were asked what does an education ean to you how important is it. it's french kids from these pieces defence families were you know i almost universally staying in education doesn't do me any good at all. and that to me that kind of thing on checking out what an education free to do feeling
7:56 pm
again let's remember were here because we recognize that education powers. hi economies and and and an international educational power and national economy on that i know for fact that you would never have a situation like that in shanghai. even the foreskin would never sing in education is the what's the point. it is to motivate the only athlete exactly been cynically many of its percent were going to wrap this up and just ask one final question to me yes or no answer just a year you went to school in shanghai and i live in france if you have kids here if you have kids really wanted them to school came time for france. transit center loss to france because i think in time to reset their recent years with suffering and oppression from family from society from parents. soon i won't. my kid to grow a happy as a kid and not a sound test you have to brew from two years old oh
